March 4, 2021: Seventy-three percent (73%) of voters nationwide have either received a COVID-19 vaccination or know someone who has. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that total includes 20% who have been vaccinated.
Another 53% have a close friend or relative who has already received the vaccine.
Not surprisingly, the numbers vary by age. Among senior citizens, 87% have either been vaccinated (54%) or know someone who has (33%). Among the youngest voters, those aged 18-24, just 3% have been vaccinated. However, even among those young voters, 58% have a close friend or relative who has been vaccinated.
The growing reality of the vaccine has significantly increased the number who believe the worst of the pandemic is behind us.
Yesterday's Number of the Day found that 50% of voters now believe that many states and cities overreacted to the coronavirus pandemic.
